Join Dr. Schwartz to discuss the psychology of adolescent identity development in "The Summer I Turned Pretty".
"The Summer I Turned Pretty" is a popular romantic drama based on the young adult novel trilogy of the same name. It follows 15-year-old Lola Tung (Belly), as she faces the challenges of love, loss, and growing up. We will discuss the advantages and pitfalls of a show that is both for and about high schoolers who are navigating the development of their identities.
Distinguished Lecture Series

It's not love, it's just dopamine
Wednesday, October 25th from 5:30-6:30pm
With Dr. Zoe Donaldson
Arrive at 5:00pm for a seat and a slice of pizza! The talk starts at 5:30pm.
This event is wheelchair accessible and open to all CU Boulder students, faculty, and staff.
Join Dr. Zoe Donaldson, a Professor of Neuroscience at CU Boulder, to learn about the science of love and loss through the study of monogamous prairie voles. Prairie voles are small rodents about the size of a tennis ball. Whether in the laboratory or the wild, these small creatures form lifelong pair bonds akin to human romantic relationships - some might say they fall in love and experience loss similarly to humans. Through her fundamental research focused on how the brain changes as these animals form and lose bonds, she hopes to understand how to help grieving individuals cope and re-engage with life. She has been highlighted in the Economist and the Washington Post.
All CU students, faculty, staff, alums, and community partners are welcome to attend.
Join the Honors Program for our next events in the Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion series:
Imposter Syndrome Workshop

Hosted by Dr. Kate Fischer
Snacks will be provided.
Ever feel like you're faking it? That everyone around you has it together, and you're the only one struggling, or that not understanding something on the first try means you're a failure? Do you feel like you have to get perfect grades or that no one else in a group project can do it as well as you can?
If you've ever felt like a fraud, a perfectionist, or like your worth is determined by your grades, this workshop is for you. We'll discuss the different forms of imposter syndrome and work through some ways to combat it. Bring your openness and honesty, and walk away knowing you're not alone.
